Fires are expected to continue through Friday evening, according to the National Weather Service.

In Southern California, strong Santa Ana winds were fanning two fires, including the Woolsey Fire, which by Friday morning had burned across U.S. 101 and was heading in the direction of Malibu.

The blaze advanced rapidly to the outskirts of the city of Chico early on Friday, forcing thousands to flee.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department has issued mandatory evacuation orders south of the 101 freeway to Mulholland Highway.

Richardson estimates another 60,000 people will likely have to evacuate because the fire jumped US 101 early Friday and is pushing toward the coast. Video from the scene shows firefighters battling to extinguish burning buildings, as the sky glowed orange and filled with smoke.

Another blaze in northern California has destroyed one town and is threatening another, officials say.

OES Director Mark Ghilarducci said in Friday's press briefing that state agencies are still working toward assessments of damage and losses. The fire near the Northern California town of Paradise has grown to almost 110 square miles.

He added that the broken sensor from the Bali-Jakarta flight would be sent to the manufacturer in Chicago for further examination. Lion Air is one of Indonesia's youngest airlines but has grown rapidly, flying to dozens of domestic and worldwide destinations.

The city tweeted that the evacuation affects areas between the Ventura county line and Malibu Canyon. "Mandatory evacuations are now in place for all of Malibu, including unincorporated areas". Another fire northwest of Los Angeles has been swept southward toward the ocean by strong Santa Ana winds. The north and southbound lanes of the 101 freeway near Santa Rosa Road. The trendy beach resort has about 13,000 residents and 21 miles of gorgeous coastline. This morning at 7:00am, the Los Angeles Fire Department reported via Twitter that the fire is an "imminent threat" to Malibu.

Schools and hospitals also evacuated.

The Butte County Sheriff's Office said Friday that five people were found dead in vehicles burned by the Camp Fire, which devastated the town of Paradise, Calif. on Thursday.

Thousands Oaks lies about a 30-minute drive away from the north end of Malibu.

The Thousand Oaks-area Conejo Valley Unified School District also has closed all its schools. All totaled, 40,000 people have been evacuated from the path of the wildfire so far. "You pose a danger to yourself and emergency responders", Ventura County Fire Department Captain Scott Dettorre said about the drivers.

Responders are still assessing how many structures were lost, but the priority Friday was life safety and making sure people get evacauted from threatened areas, he said. The fast-moving Hill fires started near the community of Thousand Oaks, which was in the midst of grappling with the Wednesday night shooting that killed 12 at the Borderline nightclub.

While not as big as the Camp Fire, the Woolsey Fire, which now measures approximately 8,000 acres, is in a much more densely populated area.

The fire in Paradise burned fast, reports CBS News' David Begnaud.
